Spalding House Family Day

In conjunction with Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday, the museum also holds a free Family Day at its location in Makiki Heights, with entertainment and an art activity. A free shuttle bus will run between the Honolulu Museum of Art and Spalding House, so you can enjoy two different events in one day.

Nov 16: On the Steppes

Mongolians believe that “a Mongol without a horse is like a bird without wings.” Create a miniature horse to celebrate the importance of horses in Mongolian culture.

Looking ahead:

Dec 21 Continue the Pasko celebration at Spalding House. Artists Nicole and Ryan Higa help children create jeepney ornaments using things like recycled milk cartons, yarn, and colored paper. It’ll be ready to hang on the tree!

Jan 18 Get your timber on with artists Nicole and Ryan Higa. Using wooden blocks, dowels, and sticks, create a wood troll to guard your sailboat. 

Feb 15 Grab some yarn and get creative with artists Nicole and Ryan Higa to make colorful pompom sheep out of yarn, pipe cleaners, and googly eyes. Pompoms are easy to make—perfect for kids of all ages.
